If you love cinnamon then you will love these cookies, bake them longer for a more crispy cookie, this makes a lot of cookies but they freeze well --- Source; Taste of Home Magazine :)

Great cookies. They are more flavorful then a snickerdoodle. I made a few changes. I subbed 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, lemon juice for zest and only added 1 tsp nutmeg. I will definately make these again and will try as the recipe is written. Oh and I used colored sugar as white sugar is just too boring. Thanks Kitten for a new favorite.
